This summer, we are all practicing with the re-emerging experience of presence to and with one another. The Zen Practice Groups of University Unitarian Church  (UUC) and Woodinville UU Church  (WUUC) cordially invite you to join them for a multi-day meditation intensive as they host the Empty Moon Zen Sanghas in exploring the intimate way of Being Present.

From Thursday evening, July 29, through Sunday noon, August 1, experienced Zen practitioners and teachers from several locations will engage in Sesshin, an ancient practice adapted for a commuter format (non-residential), available both in-person (at UUC) and online (via Zoom).

All are welcome, regardless of meditation experience. You do not have to be a UU or a Zen Buddhist to attend. Meditation instruction will be offered in the morning and afternoon on Friday and Saturday to support new practitioners. While full-time participation is strongly encouraged, part-time attendance is also welcome. Please register now to attend full-time or part-time, whether online or on-site. Drop-ins may be accommodated on a space available basis.

To attend on-site at UUC, you must be fully vaccinated and bring proof of vaccination to enter the building. There is a fee for registration. A sliding scale is available to help remove barriers to participation.
